We visited on a rainy evening and got to spend an hour with the cats. The cafe staff are friendly and welcoming. They talked about the different cats, their history etc. Lots of cats were napping but all enjoyed some attention and some more playful...More

This was the third time that we’ve visited Koneko in as many years. Whilst the cats can be adopted, we just visit as part of our holiday from the UK. Great staff, drinks and a safe place for cats to be. Will be back next...More

Very nice, clean cattery with three levels of cats. Wednesday is 1/2 off the admission price so I paid $12 to visit with the cats. There were 18 of them and all very healthy and mostly playful. The outside enclosure is very accomodating to them...More

As an owner of two cats, I should have known better than to arrive in the middle of afternoon. While it is a common misconception that cats sleep 16-18 hours a day (mine sleep about 16 minutes a day), they do tend to have some...More

OK, I thought it was very pricey, but I lost out on this one and had to include it. We were lucky that there were only seven of us in our timeslot as the next one seemed to have a lot more people. The cat's...More

You pay 20 bucks and get to spend 1hour with about 10-15 cats. They are cute and the atmosphere iis relaxing, you can bring your beer into the cattery. Great for kids! You can touch the cats so it's way better than the zoo.

This is a really good cat cafe. It's a 3 level space (including a patio area that was closed during our winter visit). There were 16 (adoptable!) cats in residence when we visited, with a wide range of ages and personalities. All seemed content and...More

Pretty nice little cafe, bit pricier than average but that's fairly normal for a cat cafe. We arrived at a time when the cats were being fed so we had to wait an hour to be allowed into the area where they were. The cats...More
